Original unglazed clay dolls
Kiyomizu Ningyo dolls are one of Kyoto’s traditional crafts. Takahashi offers pretty clay dolls whose simple texture will please and warm your hands. Their doll making technique is based on that of the Fushimi Ningyo dolls, which also has an old history that respects elegance. The shop is located on Kiyomizu-zaka Street whose 6th generation family of five members each creates their original dolls every day. Following traditional techniques, each member expresses his/her own sense and feeling so that every doll is unique and individual. They sell dolls with traditional literary themes, such as Noh theatre pieces and characters from the Tale of Genji, as well as modern cute items such as animals representing the 12 Chinese zodiac symbols.
